A quick oven recipe for deliciously fragrant steamed fish!
- 1 tablespoon cooking wine (shaohsing rice)
- 3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon powder
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 3 pounds halibut (filleted, or any white flaky fish)
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 4 chinese black mushrooms (soaked in warm water until soft then sliced thin)
- 4 baby bok choy (quartered)
- 2 inches ginger (piece, finely sliced like grass)
- 3 green onions (finely sliced like grass)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C)
- For the sauce: Combine 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) shaohsing rice cooking wine, 3 Tbsp. (45 ml) lite soy sauce, 4 Tbsp. (60 ml) water, 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) chicken bouillon powder, 1 tsp. sesame oil, and 2 tsp. (10 g) sugar in small mixing bowl. Stir until the sugar and chicken powder is dissolved.
- Rinse the halibut with cold water and pat dry. Season it with salt and pepper.
- Place fillets in a large heatproof dish. Arrange the 4 baby bok choy, quartered, around the fish like a frame and sprinkle 4 dried Chinese black mushroom, soaked in warm water until soft then sliced thin, and 2-inch piece ginger, finely sliced like grass, over the top.
- Pour the sauce over the fish.
- Pull a tight layer of plastic cling wrap over the baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
- Place in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until it’s cooked through.
- Check to see if the fish is done. The center should just be becoming opaque. It is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 130-135°F (55-57°C) and the fish should flake apart gently.
- Spread scallions only over the fish.
- Combine the oils in a small saucepan and heat to high for about 2 minutes or until just smoking. Using a spoon, drizzle the hot oil over the scallions to make them crackle.
- Finish by spooning the broth over the fish.
